"I have been a happy Amtelco customer since 1979 and very pleased with the comforting support from their long-serving staff."
Anthony Greenfield, CEO

A history steeped in the telephone answering service Industry

Amtelco has a long, rich history in the telephone answering service industry. In the 1950s, our founder, Bill Curtin II, was en route from Madison, WI, to surprise his family, who were vacationing in Michigan, but Bill had car problems and got stuck in Chicago, IL.

Bill knew his wife, Eleanor, would be calling home before he could return. He didn’t want Eleanor to worry when the phone was unanswered. So, Bill called the phone operator in Madison and explained, “I’m going to need your help tonight. My wife will be calling me, but I will not be there to answer the phone. My phone number is xxx-xxxx. When a call comes to my phone, can you pick it up? And if it’s my wife, can you please let her know that I was planning to surprise her in Michigan but had car troubles and got stuck in Chicago – but I’m alright?”

The operator responded, “I can’t do that!” Bill had a technical background in communications and explained how there was a way she could answer his phone. Still, the operator replied, “That is not possible, and that is not a part of my job responsibilities.”

Afterward, Bill continued to think about how to help the operator answer the phone. As he continued his research, he learned about businesses called “Answering Services” that answered phones for other people. At that time, only a handful of companies in the United States offered these services. Bill visited at least one of these Answering Services to see how they were configured to answer phone calls. He realized he could do the same thing in Madison and started planning his next business venture.

Together, Bill and Eleanor worked tirelessly to start their 24/7 answering service business. Bill often worked the night shift. If the phones were quiet, he’d use the time to think about and work on his inventions. Those inventions would eventually become the foundation of Amtelco!

Your clients will have peace of mind knowing your answering service software vendor has been providing communication solutions for decades—and was founded by one of the earliest answer service pioneers!
